Default SRT-4 exhaust on Non-turbo PT?

I found that in the search I just couldnt find a thread that someone started with a non-pt... Just making sure it will fit before I pick it up.. Now, off to write a new member introduction thread!

I've read somewhere where the non-turbo PT needs the back pressure to run well and the SRT4 exhaust doesn't have the back pressure that is needed. Keep checking around to make sure. It may fit, but not necessarily the best choice.

New Muffler - Low Back Pressure Issues?

That's funny. I got rid of my stock neon srt-4 exhaust and went aftermarket. Folks are really putting too much into that exhaust. It's 2 1/4" just like the stock PT exhaust. It has a couple resonators and no muffler. Wow, you could do the same to the PT exhaust. The exhaust is designed for the neon so the duals eliminate the spare tire on the PT. Some people are sure going through a lot of hassle for an exhaust system that most neon srt-4 owners get rid off real quick and one that offers a different sound, but no benefit at all for performance on the PT. Makes no sense to me.

Ditto, What he says!

If you're going to work your exhaust, do a cat back at least to 3", if not from the header back. To me makes no sense doing anything else.

Also, it's almost cheaper to find a good shop who can do mandrel bent pipe and good welding. Here they charge about $125 for a custom job on a PT.

awesome advice. it never occurred to me that the spare tire would have to go to make room for the dual exhaust
